La douleur est tres profonde
Il coupe dans mon Coeur
Je ne peux pa me sauver

Je suis sous votre charme, je ne serai jamais libre
Cet amour me prend à un lieu que je n'ai jamais été

English Translation- I Love You

You are so naughty
The pain is so deep
It cuts straight through my heart
And I can’t seem to help myself

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you

Dance with me in the night
Hold me and kiss me my darling
You are so naughty
And I adore every moment!

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you (Rpt)

I’ve fallen under your spell, I will never be free
Your love takes me to a place I have never been
My love, my love, kiss me, hold me, never desert me
My love my love, I will love you for eternity

Oh oh oh oh oh (Rpt)

You are so naughty
The pain is so deep
It cuts straight through my heart
And I can’t seem to help myself

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you (Rpt)

If I dream of you, if I dream of you
I will have a nightmare
